Bridge Repairs on US 3 Over Indian Stream in Pittsburg
Project Extended by Need to Replace Bridge Deck

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the bridge repair project underway on the US Route 3 bridge over Indian Stream in Pittsburg will involve more extensive work.

The project began two weeks ago as a bridge deck rehabilitation, but a full deck replacement is now needed due to the overall poor condition of the deck observed upon removal of the pavement.

The roadway will now be restricted to one 11-foot lane, with alternating traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals. A detour route for wider loads will be posted from US Route 3 in Clarksville over West Road, then north on NH Route 145 into Pittsburg and back onto Route 3. The detour will be signed and the road restriction will begin during the week after Memorial Day (May 26).

Phase 1 of the project is expected to take until late July to complete. Phase 2 of the project will be completed by mid-September. This work is being performed by a crew from the NHDOT's Bridge Maintenance Bureau.
